HISTORY OF THE SECOND UNION MISSIONARY  BAPTIST CHURCH

Pastors of Second Union Baptist Church

The Second Union Missionary Baptist Church was founded and organized under the leadership of Rev. George Washington on March 12, 1894, Rev. Matt Bryar was the second pastor, and he served as pastor until early 1903.  The third pastor was Rev. Mack Williams, who became the pastor in 1903, and served until his death in the fall of 1911.  Rev. Isaac Williams, who was baptized here and later ordained, carried on the services while Rev. Mack Williams was ill.  Rev. Mack Williams was elected pastor in 1912 and served until 1923.  During the leadership of both Rev. Isaac and Rev. Mack Williams, Sunday School services and Baptist Youth Planning Unit were held. Additionally, under their leadership, the church purchased 1/3 acre of property.  Rev. Lewis Jones became a pastor in 1923 and served until his death on May 7, 1929. Rev. J.S. Robinson became a pastor in July 1929 and served until 1935.  The church purchased an additional ½ acre of property.  Rev. Dave Williams became the pastor in 1935, and he served faithfully until 1938.
 
In the year 1938, Dr. G. C. Jacobs was elected pastor of the Second Union Missionary Baptist Church.  Under Dr. Jacob’s leadership and guidance, the Second Union Baptist Church prospered in many ways, especially when you consider the time and patience that it took to form the various auxiliaries and organizations that we are so proud of today.  The church was torn down in 1958 due to Hurricane Audrey and was later rebuilt. Later classrooms were added and the air conditioning system was installed.  Due to illness, Rev. Jacobs resigned as pastor of Second Union in January 1976 after servicing as pastor for 38 years.  The Lord blessed us to have Rev. Albert Robinson as an Associate Minister who carried on services until a pastor was elected.  In April 1976 Rev. Wilbert Wilson, Jr. was elected as pastor of Second Union Missionary Baptist Church.  Under Rev. Wilson’s leadership, the church prospered tremendously.  Under his leadership, the Welfare Fund was organized where the church helped many people in need.  The church also helped various charitable organizations, such as The Wolverine Foundation, Sickle Cell Anemia Foundation, and the Doll and Toy Fund, just to name a few.  Our Youth Department was organized and our church membership increased greatly. In 1979 five deacons were ordained: Deacon Curtis Robinson, Sr., Deacon Johnnie Elie, Deacon Wesley Anderson, Deacon Charlie Gilmore (who was later called into the ministry); and Deacon Joseph Hudson, Jr. In 1983, Bro. James Ivory, Sr. was added to the Board of Deacons. In 1985 we were blessed to build a new cafeteria and fellowship hall that was dedicated in the names of the late Rev. G.C. Jacobs and Deacon Dan Taylor.   Additionally, under Rev. Wilson’s leadership, Rev. Charlie Gilmore was appointed as Youth Minister.  Rev. Wilson remained our pastor until August 1985.
